August 13th - August 18th, 2018
It is that time of year again! Encounter is our annual middle school summer retreat where we hope and expect that our students will meet with Jesus in a life changing way. The theme for Encounter this year has taken a wild west spin; Outlaw. Throughout scripture Jesus and His followers live Holy lives. That is, a life set apart and different because of God’s calling. Join us this year at Camp Bighorn August 13-18 where we will explore the radical and counter cultural life that Jesus lived and calls us to. Please keep an eye out for a confirmation email after you register, it will have additional information and forms that you may need.

Fire is a tool utilized only by human beings. Since the beginning of time, humans have congregated around its warmth for light, protection and company. Every other creature on the planet fears fire, but we’ve been given the unique ability to harness it, to use its power to improve our lives. Not only that, but poets and artists have used fire to describe the God-given spark that wakes us up in the morning and fuels our purpose and passion. Whatever the context, fire is not to be ignored.
Sisters, this is a year we will tend the fire in our hearts.
We will stop inhaling the fumes of our mistakes that tell us we are not enough, not a good enough mom, not pretty enough, not brave enough, not smart enough, not wealthy enough. Instead, we will choose to tend our God-given fire. We will love our children with an all-consuming love and use our words to warm the world. We will hold the torch up high and shed light on what matters most.
When our homes feel cold, we’ll light a fire.
When a friend has lost her spark, we’ll fan her flame.
When the world seems dark, we will be an ember of hope.
Never let the fire go out ... When you hope, be joyful. When you suffer, be patient. When you pray, be faithful. Share with God’s people who are in need. Welcome others into your homes. - Romans 12:11-13 (NIrV 1998)
